Motor oil is its blood. ... LIQUI MOLY offers the matching motor oil for every vehicle in the world. Our motor oils have a variety of approvals by German and overseas car manufacturers, or fulfill the requirements of the producers.
Engine oil additives are chemical compounds that improve the lubricant performance of base oil (or oil "base stock"). Motor oil additives have three basic roles: Enhance existing base oil properties with antioxidants, corrosion inhibitors,anti-foam agents and demulsifying agents.
Ester oil is synthetic base oil that has been chemically synthesized. Typically ester oils are used in passenger car air-conditioning compressors, refrigerators and other industrial applications.Esters are stable molecules, provide good solvency, and provide very good low-temperature and high-temperature performance in engine oils.
When fuel efficient, hybrid cars like the Toyota Prius first hit the market, they were all the rage. But now, with gas prices much lower than they once were, and still going down, one starts to wonder if the cost of driving a hybrid is worth the environmental benefits.
Normally, routine maintenance and minor repairs are no higher on a hybrid than on a regular car. ... Routine maintenance costs on a hybrid may be lower than on a regular car. The gas engine shuts down when the car is idling and at other times, such as driving at low speeds when the electric motor takes over.
Conventional engine oil should always be used to break-in a new or rebuilt engine. During the break-in period, the camshaft, lifters, and piston rings establish a wear pattern that helps them function properly. Synthetic oil contains additives and friction modifiers that will slow down the break-in process.
Car engine oils contain friction modifiers and are formulated with the aim of reducing friction between moving parts in order to provide good fuel economy and efficiency. Motorsysles, on the other hand, use the same oil for both the engine and the gearbox.
In general, oils should be compatible with each other. It is not likely that you would form gel by mixing the two oils. However, we would not recommend mixing oils as a general practice because oils are complex mixtures of additives and base oils that can be destabilized. And it wouldn't be a great idea to reduce the outstanding performance of Tan Chong Fully Synthetic Oil by adding regular oil.
